The Pravara Institute of Medical Sciences – Deemed University started its own Rural Health Centre (RHC) – 9th in the series, at Village Lohare-Mirpur on 9th April 2013, as part of WHO Day celebrations. The new RHC is another step towards strengthening the PIMS University-Community Partnership for improving access and sustainable health in the remote rural area. The services of RHC reach about 12000 general populations inhabited in 6 villages (Lohare, Mirpur, Primri Lokai, Mendavan, Kasare, Wadzare) 10-20 Km away from the University.

The RHC provides general medical, maternal, child and adolescent health and laboratory services. These routine medical services are augmented by specialist services on regular periodical visits by PIMS University Medical and Dental Hospital and Physiotherapy faculty.

The RHC was inaugurated by Shri Rajendra E. Vikhe Patil, CEO, PIMS-DU in the presence of Dr. S.D. Dalvi, Vice Chancellor, PIMS-DU and Dr. Nagargoje, ADHO, Public Health Department, Ahmednagar. The inaugural function was well attended by Heads of Institutes and faculty of PIMS-DU and general public of Lohare and its neighbouring villages. The RHC is run by the Centre for Social Medicine (CSM) – a constituent unit of PIMS-DU.
